You are confusing Capitalism with Consumerism. Consumerism is all about unbridled consumption without thought of consequences, Capitalism is just about making a profit. First the consumers have to be taught that there is a benefit to living within the means of the planet and fixing what they broke getting to where they are now. If there is a benefit people are eventually willing to pay for it, if there are people willing to pay for it there is a profit, if there is a profit there will be Capitalism. Capitalism isnt societal, Consumerism is; if Consumerism can be eradicated then Capitalism can actually drive positive change.

Because they haven't figured out yet that the closer the ones are in emitting it, the more danger they have in suffering the side effects of it. If they feel as though it is as much as a problem for all, the same, they won't bother with it. Too lax, on the subject, for their own sake, more..then to be of help to others on down the road.
